Have Laptop – Will Travel!
Five of Singapore’s most delicious places to work from
Starting your day with a leisurely breakfast, you need never nurse one cup of mediocre coffee for hours in a chain coffee shop again.

You have to admit that sitting in a chilled eatery with free Wi-Fi, fantastic menus and a pleasant vibe is one heck of a way to work!
Choosing your location is of vital importance as you actually want to get some work done and not be distracted from your laptop (even if it’s one of those cheap laptops, that are quite efficient nowadays). Below is a go to list of some of the best places to work from and enjoy your time as well.
49 Duxton Road. Hidden away on the second floor of a reconstructed shop house, Group Therapy is one of the latest coffee shops to open up in the trendy Duxton Hill area. Previously opened as an event space, the café has been on the rise and has the most tempting menu – don’t expect anything fancy but this place has straightforward café food – it does look amazing and is guaranteed to provide you with enough fuel to get you through the working day.
80 Dempsey Road – If you’re looking for a home from home vibe then ‘House’ is the place for you. Quirky vintage furniture blends with a cool and laidback atmosphere. Mingle over a long brunch and take in the surroundings. Sit outside and enjoy the surroundings of the forest with only the wildlife to disturb your concentration.
